Making Labels with Motex

May 3, 2014 Filed Under: Sponsored Post 5 Comments

I’ve always had a knack for messing up my workspace every now and then – and for good reason, ‘cause I’ve been updating and organizing some of my photos and journals (I have a lot!).

Moment collecting is something I love to do, and I like to invest in DIY & craft materials to help me in the process. So imagine how giddy I was when Home Edited sent me a Motex label maker – just one of the things I’ve been wanting to have for crafting!


Remember those days when we’d label every single thing just ‘cause it looked cool? (guilty!) Yeah, it’s pretty much like that. 

It comes in two interchangeable wheels (for uppercase and symbols + lowercase and numbers) and I’m super loving the cute colors of the tape refills – gives me more variety for label making.

Here are some stuff I’ve labeled with using the Motex label maker.


My love for traveling goes beyond exploring new places and visiting unknown cities – I like to keep snippets of memorabilia from my trips and I print out photos as well that I add to my travel journal (I’ll let you in on a peek soon!).

Inside each envelope are tickets, passes, maps, tags and small things I like to keep. They’re segregated per destination so it’s easier to store. Plus points ‘cause they just got Motex-fied!


I used to take a lot of polaroid pictures (my polaroid is now dead, I cry) so I also labeled them to add a pop of color, too. I have a small card case for storing these Instax photos.


Another thing I incorporated label making with is my journal for this year. I’m using The Daykeeper and the blank pages are really great for photo journaling. 


Here’s a peek at a recap of some of the amazing things that happened last month. :) I’ve been doing this for quite a while now (8 years!) and I still think it’s the best way to keep memories. 


This is only the beginning of the many projects I’ll be doing with the Motex label marker. I’m pretty sure I’ll go crazy over other things label-worthy once I get back from Singapore (aka craft hoarding trip!).

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for a new addition to your DIY stash, check out Home Edited‘s Motex label maker. It’s available in pink & green, and you can order via Facebook or Instagram. :)
